The gRPC protocol fails to follow HTTP status code semantics, and
all responses in gRPC use status code 200. For details see protocol
specification here:

https://github.com/grpc/grpc/blob/master/doc/PROTOCOL-HTTP2.md

How a particular response will be handled by a client depends on
the "grpc-status" response header. You can add one with the
"add_header" nginx configuration directive.

Note that it might be non-trivial to find out which grpc-status
codes should be used, as the "specification" in question fails to
define them. Status codes seems to be listed - and with some
descriptions - here in the grpc sources:

https://github.com/grpc/grpc/blob/master/include/grpc/impl/codegen/status.h
