    I already checked /var/lib/php5-fpm/web1.sock permission but it seems correct

    Is nginx running as user nginx by chance?
    Check /etc/group for clientXY entries, they're typically assigned to www-data.

    If nginx runs as "nginx" there's no way it is allowed to read from that socket.
    Either run nginx as user www-data ( nginx.conf user www-data; )
    or ... don't do this: change sockets chmod to 666 which would basically allow everything to read/write that socket and is a bad idea.

    Edit: you could also try adding nginx to www-data group $usermod -a -G www-data nginx
