About nine minutes into a tutorial on ERPNext I followed directions as:

However:

lynx: Can't access startfile http://localhost/
nicholas@mordor:~$ 

How do I configure as above for local usage? Effectively, offline. To my understanding, nginx is being used as a reverse proxy here.

I'm getting some result:

nicholas@mordor:~$ 
nicholas@mordor:~$ lynx erp.mordor.bounceme.net --dump

nicholas@mordor:~$ 

but not the welcome screen I'm looking for. The FQDN isn't publicly available.

According to your screen dump you have your port 80 mapped to the Traefik container

58cd5b59579c traefik:v2.2 "/entrypoint.sh --lo…" 16 minutes ago Up 15 minutes 0.0.0.0:80->80/tcp, 0.0.0.0:443->443/tcp frappe_docker_traefik_1

The listen address of this mapping is 0.0.0.0 on both port 80 HTTP, and 443 HTTPS which means it listens on all your computer interfaces. Including the local-loopback interface which has the address of 127.0.0.1.

Most operating systems have a file called hosts which is located at /etc/hosts for Linux, MacOS, BSD and at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts for Windows 10.

This file maps the DNS names (such as localhost) to their IP addresses, like 127.0.0.1.

For you to have a working FQDN, you can temporarily create a new mapping in this file to map your desired name to the local-loopback address of 127.0.0.1.

Edit the hosts file and add a line saying:

127.0.0.1 erp.mordor.bounceme.net

The applications that lookup that name later, such as lynx, will now know that erp.mordor.bounceme.net is located at 127.0.0.1 IP address. And your Docker Traefik container is listening there (as well) on ports 80 and 443.
