Problem with Confluence behind Nginx Edited

I installed Confluence on my own VPS server (in /var/www/atlassian/confluence/ directory), I also configured SSL. In order to connect Confluence to my own domain I did everything according to this manual.

Unfortunately, when I enter my subdomain I get information about error 404 (some simple HTML from Confluence exists), in the browser console a lot of errors about missing resources and strange URLs (e.g. https://my.subdomain.com/s/a5b9cfe2e93be163560b16bfe0aa76f7-CDN/gsrvpz/8301/s1264995706/8.3.5/_/download/batch/com.atlassian.auiplugin:split_aui.splitchunk.vendors--57570d46fb/com.atlassian.auiplugin:split_aui.splitchunk.vendors--57570d46fb.js?locale=en-GB).

I restarted Confluence and NGINX and PHP-FPM and it didn't work.

I've been on it for a couple of hours and I don't know what to do anymore.
Below is the nginx configuration file:

server {
listen my.subdomain.com:80;
server_name my.subdomain.com www.my.subdomain.com;

listen 443 ssl;
ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/my.subdomain.com/fullchain.pem;

ssl_session_timeout 5m;

ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;

if ($host = my.subdomain.com) {

I think the nginx line:

proxy_pass http://localhost:8090/confluence

should be:

proxy_pass http://localhost:8090

to match <Context path="" ....>

it helps, thank you!
