You can do what you want. It won't work, however.

wooden floors


Why would you want to?
Are you trying to install it over a slab?

wooden floors


Solid wood floors that are 3/4" can not be glued down over a concrete slab. Engineered hardwoods can however be. I would suggest Bostiks Best glue, it is a vapor barrier and glue in one. Be sure to check the moisture levels in the concrete prior to gluing a wood floor to it. You can do this with a calcium chloride test. These can be found online. If you have a plywood subfloor, I would staple rather than glue as it is easier and it saves the cost of glue.
