Should work.

Unless you have a firewall rule blocking it (maybe the router
firewall) or you typing the wrong url (type https://server:port
instead just https://server as it defaults to 443 port).

As I said, should work.

Also, how are you testing? If you are accesing yourself (from your
LAN) typing the public address or the domain pointing to your public
address, you need to know that some (old) routers make some kind of a
loop and instead do translation of IP/port, they try to serve
themselves with their private address as they understand the public
IP are themselves.

You should use a proxy, in this case, or request someone to test from
outside, or using your mobile phone.
