You have an separate public IP address for the server?

Is that Web server reached by some name at the moment from the Internet?

Are you using a DNS server on the Internet for your LAN users?

If all of the above are true, you should be able to configure the NAT on the ASA so that you can reach the Web server from your LAN the same way you would reach it from the Internet.

The logs you posted dont seem to related to the actual Web server connections or if they are there is some pretty wierd NAT configurations going on.

Also if you have only made the Web servers NAT between DMZ and OUTSIDE, it will not apply to connections coming from the LAN. In other words, in that case you cant use the public IP address to connect  to the Web server from LAN.

Can you answer the above questions and perhaps provide some current configurations from the ASA to go through the situation.

Thank you, it worked. I first tried accomplish this by using only inside interface, that is, user and host on the same subnet, but user refer host by public ip but without success. When host is on the dmz subnet it worked.
