That's because nginx supports the old PCRE only. See
<https://forum.nginx.org/read.php?29,281263,281272#msg-281272>. First Nginx
must be ported to PCRE2. Then you could build nginx against PCRE2. Until it
happens, you have to use the old PCRE.

Hence you should talk to nginx authors about your issue. PCRE developers
cannot help you with it.
