That depends of what you want to build, PHP + Mysql is full easy you can start with that. React is not a backend language and firebase is a BaaS (Backend as a service) you should start with an SQL database because is more easy to make querys.

If you do not want to work with php you can use NestJs(a nodejs framework) is extremely easy to learn and more if you know Angular.

I just want to make clear you are saying I should use NestJs + MySQL?

If you want to.
To be clear, You are new in this world? or You want to learn something new?
If you are new I recommend you to learn first SQL Fundamentals(MySQL is a database management system) and after that (If you want to work with Nest) at least the basic of NodeJs(express) and Typescript(is like a Javascript with steroids) or if you want to work with php you should learn the basic and then learn Laravel(is the most famous framework actually).

okay so here is it how I am going to do.
First I will learn MySQL and PHP after that I will make some projects and post it on Github. Then If I am still into learning I will learn NodeJS and NestJS.

Just one more question - Is there a backend language that is considered more during job interviews than the rest?

Well I think that depends the place you are applying and your country, for example I'm from Dominican Republic here the most demands programming language is C# but that doesn't mean that you do not find jobs with others language, I work with PHP and are a lot of demands, I decided to learn NestJs because I knew Angular and learn Nest was very easy to me and because I wanted to try something new.
