Tying in floor joist to existing structure

I am expanding/extending my current bedroom and bath which will require removing rear exterior wall. My question is when tying in the new floor joist I plan to use 2x10 with one end sitting on the top plate of the new wall and the other I plan on using joint hanger to tie it into the existing rim board. will I have to double up the existing rimboard like I would for adding a deck? If I dont I know I will have 1" of nail sticking through the backside of the existing rim board going through the joist hanger.

You're removing the back wall of the house to expand the living space. There needs to be a header engineered for the new combined load. I just didn't see it mentioned in the post.
