Ingress with an extra reverse proxy (nginx)

Cluster information:

Kubernetes version: 1.27.3
Cloud being used: bare-metal
Installation method:
Host OS: Ubuntu 22.04
CNI and version: Docker Engine version 24.0.2
CRI and version: Mirantis cri-dockerd 0.3.4


I am trying to migrate our existing processes to Kubernetes, to understand what I want to achieve I need to get a bit more into detail.

At the moment we are using Docker-Swarm to deploy our different environments. We are using different nginx (reverse proxies) Images to deliver our applications (One reverse proxy per environment). Now I have the problem that I am not able to use the nginx-ingress-controller for that case because all Images are different in every section.

So I am thinking about using the nginx-ingress just as a proxy so every Requests will still be handled by our own reverse proxy. But as far as I can tell it is not possible to do that. I tried it in different ways but I am not able to get it running.

I would appreciate it if there is anyone who can help me out. If u need more information just let me know.

I am using different ingress-controller now, so this thread (question) can be deleted.
