http://example.com and http://www.example.com show the same site:

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
}
}

exception are done only for two uri, which are HTTP-only.

No problem,

server {
listen 443 default_server;
server_name example.com;

location / { return 301 https://www.example.com$request_uri; }

location = /mobile/PayOnlyResult.do {
return 301 http://example.com$request_uri;
}
location = /kor/tel.do {
return 301 http://example.com$request_uri;
}
}

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

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

... # HTTPS-only
}

HTTPS-site example.com is default site and does not have HSTS.

Agree, I don't know why topic starter need such strange configuration.

I can't agree with you what disabling HSTS
on HTTPS-sites is the best possible way.

My way of solution may be more simple, if for HTTP-only server
use other name, for example, public.example.com
or legacy.example.com or static.example.com
or something like this.

In this case, www.example.com and example.com
can be both HTTPS-sites, without exceptions.
