Hugo's alias basically creates a /alias/index.html file which contains a
meta refresh. I managed to find something using an if which does the
job, however using the map solution presented is much more elegant as it
would reduce the redirects.

                if ($args ~ "^p=(\d+)") {
                        set $page $1;
                        set $args "";
                        rewrite ^.*$ /p/$page last;
                        break;
                }

I knew there'd be a simpler way and I due to the time of night I was
struggling.
