Hanger boards are at the top, are they not?

Except that instead of pushing against a braced board, you would be pulling away from an un-braced board.

I was able to resize the pic enough that I now think I know what is being asked.
As Willie said, NO you cannot use joist hangers for the first riser connection. The forces are NOT straight down, they are pulling the stringer away from the landing.

The hanger board is indeed for the top riser connection. However if goal is to increase headroom on the underside of the stair for the flight below you should consider a housed stringer stair. You could move the underside of the stair up at least 4".

I'd be looking for a way to extend that floor so the stringer has something to sit on.
