Is it possible that we obtain two products (2,4,6 TriNitroBenzene or o-nitro phenol) on reacting phenol with conc. sulphuric acid and then with conc. nitric acid?

When phenol is treated first with conc.H2SO4 to form ortho para substituted disulphuric acid which on further treating with conc. HNO3 it forms picric acid (2 4 6- trinitrophenol) For the preparation of o-nitrophenol phenol is first treated with NaNO3 and then adding conc. HNO3 to it which form o-nitrophenol
