Failing/Blocked POST request using Node.js and Application Manager

Hi all!

I am using the application manager to host my node.js apps. On my website I have a NodeMailer Express server running in the backend that listens on port 3000 and has a path that when a contact form is filled in properly, and when the button is clicked to send the form, it goes to this path: https://example.tld:3000/send.

The problem I have now is that when i click the send form button, it gives me an ERR connection refused error because the port is blocked/not activated. Then I did some research and apparantly application manager redirects the active node.js listening ports to port 80/443.

Now the question: how do you guys configure a proper backend with multiple microservices? Because I have absolutely no clue anymore...

Btw, my Server side rendering using application manager works perfectly so my host has a perfectly working node environment.
