What you are describing sounds more like a tcp port forwarder than a
reverse proxy to me.

Do not have "listen 443" or "ssl on" in the nginx.conf. Let your separate
port forwarder listen on port 443 and tunnel the data straight to your
back-end server.

nginx.conf for http will be like pretty much any examples you can find.
