[1] For exmaple, configure Nginx to set proxy on /chat for an application which works on port 1337 of backend server.
The sample application is from here (section [3]).
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
# change like follows in "server" section

    server {
        listen      80 default_server;
        listen      [::]:80 default_server;
        server_name www.srv.world;

        location /socket.io/ {
            proxy_pass http://node01.srv.world:1337/socket.io/;
            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header   Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header   Connection "upgrade";
        }

        location /chat {
            proxy_pass         http://node01.srv.world:1337/;
            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header   Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header   Connection "upgrade";
        }

        location / {
            proxy_pass http://node01.srv.world/;
        }
    }

[root@www ~]#
systemctl restart nginx

[2] If SELinux isenabled, allow port for application.
[root@www ~]#
semanage port -a -t http_port_t -p tcp 1337
