Redirects work on URL requests coming from outside, not on files inside the server.
htaccess cannot and does not "make" URLs.
That said, you are better off moving your code to the root htaccess file, especially any code that performs any sort of redirect.
Make sure that none of your rules use the Redirect or RedirectMatch directives, convert all of them to use the RewriteRule directive.
