From those words, and the Subject: line above, I'm not actually sure what
it is that you want to do. "all requests to the same file" is one thing;
but does not seem to be what the rest of your mail implies.

I think that means "send the file, else send the directory index, else
send the fallback /index.html url".

Is that correct?

Because if so, that's what try_files is for.

If you have "location /{}" and "location /auth{}", then the first one
will match all requests that do not start "/auth".

Your third location seems odd. (It's a prefix location, since it does
not start with ~.)

That line probably doesn't do much useful.

That line probably doesn't do much useful.

But you want "try as file, then as directory, then fall back to
/index.html", no?

try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;

Remove that location{} altogether. It probably won't do any harm, as it
is unlikely to match any request. But it is confusing.
