If you are using dynamic DNS then enter your domain name for the server_name variable.

You should add your local IP here ( as well.

server {
    access_log   /var/log/nginx/muximux.access.log;
    error_log    /var/log/nginx/muximux.error.log;
    root /var/www/muximux/;
    index index.php;

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

Try accessing your Muximux installation by your local IP first.
