WP permalink working, but why content doesn’t display

I’m running a wp-blog on LEMP stack, I’m setting permalink fro WP Admin panel to say example.local/blog/%postname%

it shows full post name in the address bar, when I click any post, but it doesn’t show any content.

here’s the nginx conf file..

upstream example.local {
server fail_timeout=30;
keepalive 16;
map $http_upgrade $connection_upgrade {
default upgrade;
” close;
server {
listen 80;
listen [::]:80;
listen 443;
ssl on;
ssl_certificate /home/ssls.com/ssl-bundle-and-crt.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /root/project1.key;
server_name *.example.local example.local;
client_max_body_size 10M;

gzip on;
gzip_disable “msie6”;

gzip_vary on;
gzip_proxied any;
gzip_comp_level 6;
gzip_buffers 16 8k;
gzip_http_version 1.1;
gzip_types text/plain text/css application/javascript text/xml application/xml+rss;

location ^~ /blog {
#autoindex on;
index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
alias /var/www/html/wordpress;
try_files $uri $uri/
location ~ .php$ {
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename;

location / {
proxy_pass http://example.local;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection “Upgrade”;
proxy_read_timeout 300;
location ~ ^/static/(.*)$ {
root /;
try_files /root/project/project/staticfiles/$1 =404;
expires 7d;
add_header Pragma public;
add_header Cache-Control “public”;
location /media {
autoindex on;
alias /root/project/project/media;
if ($scheme != “https”) {
return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

As you can see, URL redirect rule is set properly under /blog location. but when I click the post, it only shows blog menu bar and nothing under, I mean no post-content

down below is .htaccess file

# BEGIN WordPress %
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> %
RewriteEngine On %
RewriteBase / %
RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L] %
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f %
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d %
RewriteRule . /index.php [L] %

I tried to disable .htaccess too, but still same
