Yes, the correct steps is plumbing to install shower tray, and after new tiles and on the end fill all corners with mastic.

Select and fix shower tray and get first fix plumbing done so your tiler will know where the outlets will be. tank/waterproof all wet area, fix selected tiles and grout always make sure your grout has no pin holes. then silicone all edges.
