Yes but remove the 1/4" plywood if that's already on the floor.

Make sure you bed cement board In the thinset and use galvinized screws or nails.

Then you need to give us what size planks. Are they tounge and groove? What size joists. What the span and spacing. Then we can determine if you should keep or pull them up.
If its old house I'd get rid of them.
