You most likely would need to set up a host record for your site.  For instance, if it is named mail, you should make a host record for mail pointing to the proper server.  Then, in your IIS on that server, make sure the header for the OWA is mail.  

In your case, it looks like you might choose "exchange" as your host record.

It has been a little while, but I had the same problem, and I think this fixed it.  If this does not work, let me know.

Are you hosting the DNS records yourself?

Is your web site hosted on the same machine as your Exchange server?

If you go to http://public-ip/, do you reach your web site?

It seems possible that your DNS records for the domain name on port 80 requests (web) are pointing to a different server than the one hosting Exchange.

If you are doing https://domain.com/exchange then I would not expect that to work.
If you are doing https://host.domain.com/exchange then ensure that host.domain.com is pointing to your external IP address.
