RSMS - Two Years Work in Regional Part

Dear All,
I am working under 457 visa in a regional part of Australia for a year now. My employer recently offered to sponsor me for PR under Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (Subclass 119/857). As I understood the immigration rules, as the employee, I have to remain employed in the nominated position in the regional area for at least two years.

I have a question, does my first year of being employed on 457 in the regional part counts toward the required two years ?

No, it's a new visa and new conditions.
