You can't overwrite nginx 'Server' header without editing source.

However I still think this is a bug, but they won't change it.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

The add_header directive can be used to add headers, but it doesn't allow to overwrite existing/standard headers, including the Server header (the only exceptions are Last-Modified and ETag).

To control what nginx returns in the Server header there is the server_tokens directive. If it's not enough for you - well, we're sorry, but that's not something we like and not something we are going to allow. The link above suggests a bunch of workarounds you can use if you don't care about nginx, nginx developers, and our feelings.

Thank you all, for the response.
I do care about nginx, nginx developers, and their feelings :)
I wanted to use this little trick for debug purpose. (Than I found this minor bug.)
I promise, next time I will not report anything...
Have a nice day.
