Using Dokku with existing Nginx config

Dokku Nginx Ubuntu 16.04

I have a VPS (created from the Ubuntu 16.04 image) which I would like to use Dokku for some applications, and others that I would like to set up myself, all using Nginx. Is this possible?

I'm asking because I had configured Nginx to proxy to an internal app that I was running through Docker, and as soon as I installed Dokku, the app I had already set up became unreachable. I was hoping there was a way for the two systems to co-exist.

Just make new virtual host for your applications.
You can use /etc/sites-aiviable/ to define ones and then link that file to /etc/sites-enabled

server {
        include /etc/nginx/snippets/letsencrypt.conf;

        location / {
                return 301$request_uri;

server {
        listen 443 ssl;

        # SSL configuration
        ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
        ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
        ssl_trusted_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;

        root /var/www/html3;

        # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

        # Redirect


        location / {
