May want to check the measurement from the bottom of the commode to the area where the wax ring sits and compare that with the thickness of whatever type of ring you have and the flange in the floor. They sell double thick rings but in my opinion it’s better to use a spacer to get the flange surface to the correct height. Don’t need waste water leaking all over (or under) your new floor, especially since it’s wood.
I have my bathroom back again, all that is left is the towel rack which I ordered and it should be here this coming week, I also need to make a base board trim piece, I would kinda like to find a 4" tall wood grain plastic piece that I can silicone into position for a water tight seal so water cannot get into the edges, but I suppose I can make what I need out of oak, but I need it to be as Wayno proof as I can get it, I have to keep the water on the surface, I have had no issues at all in front of the bathroom sink where I stand and dry off and soak the floor, then I put the towel on the floor to soak up the water, that area is soaked everyday and I have never had an issue even when I forgot to pick up the wet towel, that floor is sealed(3 coats) and has been for over 10 years.
I need to do the main bathroom now as it appears that the fitting for that toilet has been seeping water for years and I didn't know it and the particle board has turned to mush, I never use this bathroom except for guests and it needs to be torn apart and repaired, I will tear into it in the next few days, get the toilet out and then turn off the water and remove that valve and find a replacement if it needs replaced, it is seeping between the pipe and the valve(in the threads).
