Cannot access HA remotely!, Despite stable port forwarding with static IP address

Hello all!, I am new to this forum and this is my first topic, I’m also new to using HA and I have a problem I was hoping I could get some help for in here.

I have installed HA using docker in my server and it’s working perfectly locally

When I finally finished all configurations I used nginx reverse-proxy (no plugin or anything) with ssl configured over port 443 and everything.

When I try to connect I get the login page and insert my username and password and it starts loading.

Then instead of my dashboard opening up I get:

Unable to connect to Home Assistant.
Retrying in XX seconds…

I have tried to add a local link and an external link and open advanced options for it to say external access enabled but to no avail, the problem persists.

ps. I think geolocation updates from the phone work over the external link somehow…

I think it could require more ports other than 8123? or is it a security configuration thing? because afterwards I see a notification from my locally connected computer about a bad login…

Thanks in advance…
