I have Ubuntu with Nginx installed. I have not deploy any site and just GET default Nginx static page.

Google Developers Tools says:
Why the compression does not work ?

On testing your site, I find that the response is compressed with gzip.
Your screenshot shows a cached response. Clear your browser cache and try again.
As for the tool, the reason it is not getting a compressed response is that it sent an HTTP/1.0 request to your server, rather than an HTTP/1.1 request. By default nginx only sends gzipped responses to HTTP/1.1 requests. (And HTTP/1.1 is over 15 years old, so anything like that that’s still sending HTTP/1.0 requests is hopelessly obsolete or broken.)
