a .1 is invlaid with a subnet -

the Nat command is looking for the network address of the subnet specified i.e. vs

Naughton is correct, When using the Nat command you need to specify the subnet you want to nat rather than a specific IP.

The following is the correct statement for your listed config.

nat (inside) 1
