You don't use a 1-way switch with a 3-way.

You can't with that configuration. You do not have a constant hot. You only have the switched hot of the three way.

Your diagram is wrong also. There should be one black on each screw of light switch not both on one screw.

In the drawing yo have there is no way. You do not have an unswitched hot. You could probably do it from the other three way on this circuit.
