Besides, the Hobbit is a prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, so I'll be watching the Hobbit before I can watch the Lord of the Rings.

But it's only a third of the story. You'll have a long way to go before you can watch Lord of the Rings then.
It kinda feels like a sequel, prequel, and side story all at once. It starts about ten minutes before Fellowship of the Ring starts. So, you have the kind of alternate familiarity going on. Then it jumps to sixty years prior. With the possible exception of Bilbo, any characters we see that are also from the LotR trilogy aren't really (re)introduced or developed. There's an assumption you know about them. It's more like "Oh, I know you. Okay, what are you doing now?". So, in that sense I think it makes more watching LotR first I think
