This might be just me, but I wouldn't be loading that under root directory. Create a new user and use that for nodebb location under home location. As to nodebb not showing up. What does your nodebb config, and nginx config look like? I don't know what you mean by debian comes with nginx already. Sure might be in the repo but shouldn't come installed, Unless a script you ran installed it for you.
your connection to NodeBB was lost
So every now and then as I go to a page can any of you know what I did wrong?

Change url to http://your_ip or try http://localhost
"port": "4567", or other port.
You need also have unblocked/unlocked that port.
