There are two things you need to enable.
1) static port map from outside IP to inside IP + port, i.e.
    static (inside,outside) tcp <public ip> http <private ip> http netmask
                                                          ^^ port               ^^ port
2) access-list entry to permit packets inbound to that public IP/port:
    access-list outside_in permit tcp any host <public ip> eq http
NOTE: "host <public ip>" can be replaced with "interface outside" if you only have 6.3(x)
Apply the access-list:
   access-group outside_in in interface outside
