nginx doesn't do PHP, it does fastcgi. Which means that it sends a series
of key/value params to the fastcgi server, which in turn presents them
to your PHP in the _SERVER array.

Which in turn means that...

....wherever you currently set "fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_ROOT" (probably from
"include fastcgi.conf"), add the slash there and it all should Just Work.

That is:

you probably have

fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_ROOT $document_root;

Change it to be

fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_ROOT $document_root/;

and on nginx -s reload, you should see the difference.
