Why do you think that should work?  It's not a valid DNS name and
ssh(1) does not list it as a supported way of specifying the port).  If
you want to use the URI syntax that does allow a port after a colon you
need to specify the "ssh:" scheme prefix (this was added in OpenSSH

ssh ssh://debian@vps-1060b8b0.vps.ovh.net:22

If nodejs is invoking ssh in a way that's not supported that sounds
like a problem with nodejs.  You could configure around it by adding
something like this to your ~/.ssh/config file:

Host vps-1060b8b0.vps.ovh.net:22
  Hostname vps-1060b8b0.vps.ovh.net
  Port 22
