Yes -p != proxy ;-)

from curl -M

When an HTTP proxy is used (-x/--proxy), this option will cause non-HTTP
protocols to attempt to tunnel through the proxy instead of merely using
it to do HTTP-like operations. The tun- nel approach is made with the
HTTP proxy CONNECT request and requires that the proxy allows direct
connect to the remote port number curl wants to tunnel through to.
-x/--proxy <proxyhost[:port]>
Use specified HTTP proxy. If the port number is not specified, it is
assumed at port 1080.
