Which should be tightened first, AFTER making your chain slack adjustment...
the chain adjuster locking nut, OR
the axle nut.

I've always locked down the chain adjuster before tightening the axle. The adjuster is what is supposed to be what locates the axle for chain tension.

Adjuster first, wedge the handle of a screwdriver between the chain and sprocket, turn to push the axle tight against the block, then tighten axle nut. Turn and remove screwdriver.

If you do the axle nut last, you can check that chain tension doesn't change.
