Short answer is no, NGINX by itself can't execute a PHP code.
But here's the important notes here:
1. NGINX has a fastcgi module, [1], that modules allows passing
requests to a FastCGI server;
2. PHP distribution contains PHP FastCGI Process Manager, [2]
is a primary PHP FastCGI implementation.

There many resources in the internet that describes how to
integrate NGINX with a FastCGI server, so I'd recommend to
start a journey from the nginx.org, [3].

Also, you may want to take a look on NGINX Unit, [4],
a lightweight and versatile application runtime hat provides
the essential components for your web application as a single
open-source server.

Hope that helps.
