I don't know what do you mean of a "chained event". Your example can't
work as you expect because incron doesn't monitor files which are not
present at the time when the incron table is loaded (additionaly, there
is no reliable way how to monitor event on such individual files because
an event may occur before incron would start monitoring the given file).
The only way how to process events on files that will be created in
future is to monitor their parent directory.
