Cork underlayment for nailed 3/4" hardwood floor


I would like to decrease noise downstairs and plan to use 1/8" cork lay down on 3/4" plywood. After I will nail down 3/4" hardwood floor.
I'm concern if cork and parquet will create any squeaking noise.
Should I use paper above cork?
Does anyone use 1/4" cork for nailed down floor? Will it work?
Does it all make any sense?
Since joints are not even and it is a lot of work to make it even I don't want to use floating floor.

What do you mean this? Any pics? Even though hardwood is nailed, the floor still needs to be flat.

It will be flat enough but not as floating floor 1/8 per 10', plus I'm skeptical about "feeling" floating floor.

The cork underlayment will eliminate squeaks. I'm using it on top of every layer. Beams, ceiling boards, then another beam and then the top floor. Cork in between each. dorf dude...
