nginx uses error as the default log level for error_log. This logging level does not output anything to the error log in case of 404 responses, since those are trivial errors in the scope of web server operation.

You can try changing the log level by using either warn, notice, info or debug in your error_log directive, for example:

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log notice;

warn outputs a bit more information than error, notice a bit more than warn. debug produces most detailed output.

With your configuration, you need to have the following file for the GET / request to work:
