Please see the FAQ:

Why bother with the second proxy at all? The explicit proxy has access
to all the details the interception one does (and more - such as
credentials). It should be able to do all filtering necessary.

TPROXY and NAT are for proxying traffic of clients which do not support
HTTP proxies. They are hugely limited in what they can do. If you have
ability to use explicit-proxy, do so.
