Hello. I hope I’m not too late. But, I have bad news for you. :(

This is not possible with one WP installation. This is a quote from WP Codex - Create A Network:

You must choose one or the other. You can reconfigure your network to use the other choice after installation, despite the advice on the screen, but reconfiguring it might not be easy.

I’ve setup one Droplet with it and verified that it’s no possible to do it. Codex: Before You Create A Network Codex: Create A Network.

I’m not sure that you would be able to setup as you want. You would be able to setup first and second site, but I’m not sure that third is supported by Multisite. Multisite supports sub-directory or sub-domain: e.g. for sub-directory: example.com & example.com/blog e.g. for sub-domain: example.com & blog.example.com But there isn’t option for: example.com & example.org Maybe it’s possible to tweak but as I said I’m not sure in it.

You can always go with multiple sites, it could be even easier in your case
