Wood – Is it OK to use 1/4“ OSB over a standard subfloor before installing 3/4” hardwood on top


I'm planning to install a hardwood floor to butt up against ceramic tile. The tile looks like it will be 1/4" proud to the wood. Can I install 1/4" OSB over the subfloor, then the paper, then the Oak Flooring?
Any problems long term?

That will work. That's probably one of the better things to use to bring your floor level.
