Skipping built-in SSL certificate?

Discourse uses nginx in the container that it builds; you do want that nginx. You do not need to have another nginx in front of the discourse container. The standard install will request and maintain a certificate from let’s encrypt.

If you really love your certificate that you have already, and want to spend extra time learning a hard way to manage certificates and are sure that you will remember to manually update your existing certificate, you can follow the guide linked above.
