One Vinyl tile loose in one corner-what glue to use

In the small entryway to our home, there is a single vinyl tile that is coming up/lifting on one corner of the tile. The bulk of the tile is tight to the floor. We are talking about a loose corner edge of the tile, 1.5 inches by 1 inch on a side. The tile is near the edge of the floor, adjacent to a hot air heating vent, and is partially covered by the baseboard/shoe molding.

My plan: get some glue/adhesive/ whatever under the loose corner of the tile, place a weight on the tile, and wait until the glue dries/cures.
My questions: what glue should I use to secure that corner of the tile, and are there any other things to consider?

As always, thanks in advance.

You can pick up a small tub of vinyl adhesive in the flooring section of your box store. Spread it under your patch area with a small notched trowel and then weight it down overnight.

Couldn't find a link to a quart, but either big blue or big orange has quarts of vinyl adhesive as I just bought one for a patch job. Again, it will be found in the flooring section and should be specific to vinyl floors.

I know it's probably fixed but I put these types of floors in my old house and I used liquid nails and put dabs of it on the backs when I installed it. It was down 4 yrs before I sold my house due to divorce and the flooring was still like the day I put it in. Just a future thought.
