Hello Caio Tarifa,

The following solutions works on my nginx dev server on Windows.

In nginx.conf, add the following to your main server instance.

location ~ \.jpg$ {
    root   html; // edit if you use a different path to your server root.
    index  index.html index.htm; // edit if you use other file types

If this solution doesn’t work for your configuration, take a look at the following sites:

NginX Http Rewrite Module

NginX.Conf - Full Example.
