Kong service and routes with Injected NGINX_INCLUDE locations

Hi there, I am having some trouble getting Kong to proxy a request to a route which I believe I have defined a location block in Kongs custom include.

During Kong startup I use the KONG_NGINX_INCLUDE directive to load a custom NGINX file. I have some lua code which has to be run during the request to transform JSON to protobuf.

lua_code_cache off;

server {
  listen 9000;
  server_name localhost;

   location /v1/Create {
   access_by_lua_block { SOME_CODE}
   body_filter_by_lua_block {SOME_CODE}
   grpc_set_header Content-Type application/grpc;
    grpc_pass  app:50051;

I have set up my service like so.

curl -i -X POST \
--url http://localhost:8001/services/ \
--data 'name=apitest' \
--data 'url=http://localhost:9000'

And added a route

curl -i -X POST --url http://localhost:8001/services/apitest/routes --data 'paths[]=/v1/Create' 

Shouldn’t I be able to now call the following url with whatever data i normally do?

curl http://localhost:8000/v1/Create

Instead the output i get back is

kong_1  | <> *41963 "/usr/local/kong/html/index.html" is not found (2: No such file or directory), client:, server: localhost, request: "POST / HTTP/1.1", host: "localhost:9000"
kong_1  | <> "POST /v1/Create HTTP/1.1" 404 118 "-" "curl/7.65.3"

Why is it trying to retrieve the index.html file? Shouldn’t it route the request to http:localhost:9000/v1/Create?
In other words why is it not executing the lua code defined in the location block of the custom nginx server block that was injected into Kong.

Have you found the reason why? I ran into a very similar issue lately without any directives for /html/. This is mind-boggling.
