A more efficient way of doing this is :

location ^~ /library {
return 403;
}

location ^~ /conf {
return 403;
}

location ^~ /appg {
return 403;
}

since it checks the URLs using string comparison (rather than regexes)
and will halt location-searching immediately if it matches one of the
above locations.

There's probably some other location directive in your conf that is
matching http://domain.com/appg/.file. If you don't want to use the
more efficient, static locations above, try posting your full conf file.
