Thanks MrPeppah for reply,

my wp permalinks is the postname Important is- When I 'm setup WordPress permalinks is default…then http://my_domain/sample-post/ are work fine(when manually open) and http://my_domain/?p=123 not work…

and Non-WP Site links are completely not work…If open any links then it show only homepage(not redirect)

Confusing me a lot… The Biggest Brain Licker Web Server Is Nginx

Request to all, Dont Use Nginx If you are going to host Multiple website…Nginx will Death You

Check your WordPress permalinks. Under settings.

WordPress pages, category-pages, wp-admin work fine…But Only site post are not working

MrPeppah. what you are suggested the link…Its only for setup WP multisite…This is not What I want

This is an easy fix, you could have had it running already. If you want your permalinks to get working in nginx add the following to your vhost:

# Permalinks

if (!-e $request_filename) {
  rewrite ^.*$ /index.php last;

This should work for your permalinks, once done restart nginx. I don’t understand from your post what other problems you have so if you got more problems, please give some explanation.
