Nginx forward to traefik catchall

Hi, can anyone help ?
I am trying to use traffic but its infront of a nginx proxy. So I decided to make traefik listen on endpoints 81 and 444.
Then I wanted nginx to forward proxy requests to traefik to server..
But traefik isn’t doing anything, maybe I have made a mistake :slightly_smiling_face: Very probably.
here is my traefik

and ports are exposed 
      - target: 81
        published: 81
        mode: host
      - target: 444
        published: 444
        mode: host   
      - target: 8080
        published: 8080
        mode: host  

Nothing seems to be working, although I have the treafik dashboard set on 8080: and that port published so i can see traefik running..
I have a simple container that i know works as I am using it elsewhere and i have a host configured
Canyone help, i know it must be something to do with nginx
This is the nginx , i presume i am listening on 80 and forwarding to 81
should work right ?

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    server_name _;
    location / {

So nginx is the one listening on 80,443 and if anything is unserved by it then i want it to forward to traefik. Is somebody doing something similar ?

Nginx is a container? If so is the nginx container not traefik.

If they are on the same docker network then use the container name instead of

Hi, thanks for the reply.

No, traefik is in a container.

Nginx is on the host machine...

So what errors are you getting.

What routers and service do you have configured in traefik ?
