Running 2 sites on docker-nginx-php server

I’m using Docker and serving a PHP API server with nginx and mysql. Now I’m trying to add a separated static website but failed to do so by modiying nginx.conf. The following is my folder structure.

+ images
|+ php
|-- Dockerfile
||+ app
||-+ public
|||-- index.php
||+ home <-- TRYING TO GET THIS WORKING (Same level as app folder)
||-- index.html  <-- TRYING TO THIS WORKING 
|+ nginx
|-- nginx.conf
|-- Dockerfile
- docker-compose.yml

Here is my nginx conf.

  • server {

      root /app/public;
      index index.php index.htm index.html;
      location / {
          try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
      location /index.php {
          include fastcgi_params;
          fastcgi_connect_timeout 10s;
          fastcgi_read_timeout 10s;
          fastcgi_buffers 256 4k;
          fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
          fastcgi_pass php:9000;
        add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*";
        add_header Access-Control-Allow-Methods "GET, OPTIONS";
        add_header Access-Control-Allow-Headers "origin, authorization, accept";
    server {
        listen 80;
        root /home;
        index index.htm index.html
        location / {
            try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;

    I can access and everything works fine. But when I go to, it shows 404 not found. nginx/1.114 (Does it have anything to do with docker-compose.yml?)
