Serving static websites with bundled nginx

I am having a hard time trying to serve static files form bundled nginx.

I already managed to serve other webapps by injecting custom nginx config like posted here.

Now I would like to serve a static website stored under /var/www/test/ but I always get a connection refused reply.

I tried with

server {
  listen 80;
  server_tokens off;
  access_log  /var/log/home_access.log;
  error_log   /var/log/home_error.log;
  root /var/www/test;
  location / {
	try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

But as said above I can’t make it work.

I suppose I am configuring sth wrong, is there some info regarding this situation or could someone maybe guide me in some direction?
