Do you tighten the pinch bolts first or the axle nut first?

pinch bolts on the axle bolt side first. if not than the axle will just keep rotating. then b4 you tighten the other pinch bolts. you will have to make sure the forks are aligned

Tighten the pinch bolts on the throttle side first to hold the axle in place.

Torque the axle nut to spec.

Loosten all pinch bolts, align the front wheel, then torque pinch bolts to spec.
