OK, this is something possible.

Well, the "prefix"  keyword should not be used for deployment
configuration, it's only provided to help defining multiple routes in
the same "namespace".

We already documented the situation you describe for Apache2 in the
deployment guide:

Look at the rewrite rules in that example. I don't know if that's
similar to what you can do with nginx, but my bet is that if we can do
it under Apache2, there's no reason we can't under nginx.

Maybe you can paste here some of your relevant configuration files, so
we can investigate together.
