I have been wrestling with a similar problem - except mine is worse, in
that the applications running in a separate physical directory were php
applications which required $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] to point to the
actual physical directory for the real document root. I

> root /var/www/domain/html;

The problem here is that as nginx redirects to the second location block
when it can't find the file with try_files and goes to /blog/index.php,
it changes root back to the default

The way I solved the problem is

location = /blog {
rewrite ^ /blog/ permanent;

location /blog/ {
alias /home/alan/dev/blog/web/;
index index.php;

location ~ ^/blog/(.*\.php)$ {
alias /home/alan/dev/blog/web/$1;
include php-apps.conf;

and the include file (used becaise I have several similar apps in this
area and each one is treated the same)

include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_ROOT /home/alan/dev/test-base;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm-alan.sock;

There is a problem - which I don't really understand - that try_files
does not work with alias. so I am not using it in my sub location blocks

I do have

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

and with the whole thing in place I do get 404s when somebody attempts
to access a non existent page. I think in your situation, your location
path equals the final elements of the physical filesystem path, so you
could use root instead of alias and then include the try_files bits you
