Serving media files in production mode

Want to serve media files when Debug is turned to False. I am kinda new in all this thing.
Currently I am using django as DRF backend with svelte frontend and nginx that acts like proxy between all this. Everything is dockerised. There is not any particular problems with files in STATIC folder with admin styles etc, but MEDIA folder with uploaded images etc having problem serving images when Debug is disabled.
Can somebody help me with it please? There is my code just in case:

urls.py

urlpatterns += static(settings.MEDIA_URL, document_root=settings.MEDIA_ROOT)

settings.py:

LOCALE_PATHS = (os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "locale"),)
STATIC_URL = "/static/"
STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "static")

MEDIA_URL = "/media/"
MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "media")

nginx.conf

worker_processes 1;

events {
  worker_connections 1024;
}

http {
    upstream backend {
        server back:7000;
    }

     server {
        listen 80;

        location /api {
            proxy_pass http://backend;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_redirect off;
        }

        location /sitemap.xml {
            proxy_pass http://front:8080/sitemap.xml;
            # proxy_pass http://front:3000;
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        }

        location / {
            proxy_pass http://front:8080;
            # proxy_pass http://front:3000;
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        }

        location /admin {
            proxy_pass http://backend;  
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_redirect off;
        }

        location /static/ {
            alias /back/static/;
        }

       location /media/ {
            proxy_pass http://backend/media/;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
        }
    }
}

docker-compose.yml

    volumes:
      - ./back:/back
    ports:

    ports:

      - 443:443
    depends_on:
      - front

and django Dockerfile having this by default:

FROM python:3.11.4-bookworm

ENV PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE 1
ENV PYTHONUNBUFFERED 1

ARG PROJ_DIR=/back

RUN mkdir -p ${PROJ_DIR}
COPY ./back ${PROJ_DIR}

WORKDIR ${PROJ_DIR}

RUN pip install -U pip \
    pip install -r requirements.txt

RUN apt-get update \
    && apt-get -y install gettext

CMD ["python", "manage.py", "runserver", "0.0.0.0:7000", "--insecure"]

Its already quite a long time I am bashing my head against this wall, but still can’t solve it. It seems I am missing something, but don’t really understand what exactly.

You should be serving both your Django and Media files with nginx. Nginx should be serving the files directly from a storage volume, not some other handler.

Ok so after destroying everything and remaking from scratch, I was kinda able to solve it. Thanks.
