You want one more server{} block, which includes "listen 80

Then any request to that port that does not match one of the other
server_name values will be handled in that server{}.

Right now, you do not have an explicit default_server declared for this
"listen" address, so you are using the implicit one, which in this case
is wordpress2.

Good luck with it,
