HSTS is good thing and should not be disabled.

if you need http only for some uri - better create separate server,
on different server_name, which works only on http, and leave https
server for all rest https uri. for example:

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server_name www.example.com;

# HSTS (15768000 seconds = 6 months)
add_header Strict-Transport-Security max-age=15768000;

... # HTTPS-only
}

server {
listen 80;
server_name www.example.com;
location / { return 301 https://www.example.com$request_uri; }
}

server {
listen 80;
server_name example.com;
location / { return 301 https://www.example.com$request_uri; }

location = /mobile/PayOnlyResult.do {
... # HTTP-only
}
location = /kor/tel.do {
... # HTTP-only
}
}

www.example.com - HTTPS-only, example.com - HTTP-only.
