On nginx, I always add this line of code somewhere (usually in a
plugin) to force the rewrites to not include the index.php file:

add_filter( 'got_rewrite', '__return_true' );

Next, because WordPress doesn't create nginx config files natively,
you'll need to do it yourself. These rules in the .conf file will do
the job:

if (!-e $request_filename) {
  rewrite ^/files/(.*)$ /wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 last;
  rewrite ^.*$ /index.php last;

You can leave off the ms-files one if you're not using a multi-site install.
