Normal rockets would not work in a pressurized tube, but could a stage be made for the diagonal launch tube to save fuel and weight? Can the bottom stage be nuclear powered?

Unlike the piston launch that is only designed to lift a rocket out of the ground, this would be diagonal, ride on a rail and have a compression plate on the first stage.
