That's simply because Joomla! doesn't have index.html, but index.php. If you need index.html to work you need to add them as redirects to index.php, e.g. using htaccess or a component like ReDJ (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... ction/7189)

I have running various Joomla sites on Nginx webserver without problems, including SEF URLs.
Nginx does not use Apache's .htaccess overrides, but you can add some code to the virtual domain configuration of your website (probably located in /etc/nginx/sites-available/your-virtual-domain

Code: Select all

# Support Clean (aka Search Engine Friendly) URLs
        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
        }

More info about running Joomla on Nginx: http://docs.joomla.org/Nginx
