Problem with reverse proxy and https

I'm setting up an Odoo 8.0 server behind a squid 3 reverse proxy.

The proxy conf is done like this:

Any request on port 80 is redirected to port 443.

Any request on port 443 is relayed on Odoo server's port 443.


Conf on the server :

nginx as a reverse proxy, not responding on port 80, rewriting request on port 443 to port 8069.



The problem is, when I enter the public URL, port 80, Odoo server keep responding in http, not in https.

If I'm on the Odoo server local network, everything is OK.


Any idea?

    ssl on;
    ssl_certificate     /etc/nginx/ssl/server.crt;
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/server.key;
    keepalive_timeout   60;

    ssl_ciphers             HIGH:!ADH:!MD5;
    ssl_protocols           SSLv3 TLSv1;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

    proxy_buffers 16 64k;
    proxy_buffer_size 128k;

    location / {
        proxy_pass  http://oddo;
        proxy_next_upstream error timeout invalid_header http_500 http_502 http_503 http_504;
        proxy_redirect off;
        proxy_read_timeout 60m;
