Rewrite /index.html to /

Developing static files on the local filesystem I use index.html instead
of / for the home page.
When I push them to the remote server I want
http://domain.com/index.html to be redirected to http://domain.com/ for
SEO reasons.
I’ve Googled but the best I seem to be able to achieve is a redirect
loop. What do I need to do?

Here are my failed rules :

rewrite ^index.html$ $scheme://domain.com/ permanent;

rewrite /index.html $scheme://domain.com/ permanent;

location = /index.html {

rewrite ^(.*) $scheme://domain.com/ permanent;

}

Thanks.

Either

location = / {
try_files /index.html =404;
}

location = /index.html {
internal;
error_page 404 =301 $scheme://domain.com/;
}

or

location = / {
index index.html;
}

location = /index.html {
internal;
error_page 404 =301 $scheme://domain.com/;
}
