Wall switch and pull chain on light fixture

How do I wire a wall switch to a 4 foot LED with pull chain then it goes to one more light? I want to be able to turn off the 4 foot LED w/ pull chain and keep on the other single light.

I currently have it hooked up when I turn on the wall switch both light fixtures come on. But when I pull the chain on the 4 foot LED, it turns off both light fixtures.

I have a two wires coming in from the fuse box. One white one black.

The 4 foot LED has one black wire and one white wire.

The pull chain just has two black wires coming out of it.

And then the other wire is going from 4 foot LED to a single pole light fixture.

Please help.

What wires do you have at the ceiling box? Ignore the grounds for simplicity.

One side of the pull chain switch connects to the incoming power from wall switch and the outgoing power to other fixture. Other side of pull connects to 4' LED.
