I am checking for second opinion. I am a US citizen father,

Hello, I am checking for second opinion. I am a US citizen father, lived abroad for few years and now back in USA. My wife and daughter joined me, and entered on a tourist visa. my wife is applying for her green card (forms I-130 and I485) and for my daughter this is all this unclear.She was born abroad. but has a US citizen parent. From what I understood form N-600 application for certificate of citizenship applies to her. BUT when reading instructions I get confused and get the impression I need to file first I-130 and I-485 for her BEFORE I can apply for N-600. Can you please help me out in this matter.Again, she is here on a tourist visa but intending to stay.
