Affixing a 1x6 to a floor to serve as shim for stove

I have a new stove that I need to raise slightly in the front (the legs do not extend enough to get it level with existing countertops). I have a 1x6 that I cut and laid flat that fits in there nicely and I just want to affix it to the hardwood floors (it'll be hidden underneath the oven, for the most part). Does it matter whether it's nailed in or screwed in? Which kind of nail/screw would be best? As it's below the stove, not worried about any squeaking from people walking in that area).

Thanks much.

It will most likely do fine just sitting on the floor without mechanical fasteners. The weight of the stove should keep it in place.

A piece of dubble stick tape under board in a couple of places will stop it from sliding around when installing stove.
