If the browser tries to access the backend directly this is because it
was told to do so, probably by the backend itself. Have a look at the
HTTP traffic coming from the browser

When apache  is used as a forward proxy it will only forward requests
to the backend, and then forward the responses back to the browser. It
does not modify the response. If the backend sends a webpage that
contains a link that points directly at the backend than you have a
problem.

Basically when you have a forward-proxy / backend combination you need
to configure the backend so that it knows that is should return
correct URLs that point to the frontend.
