Nextjs-auth0 use withMiddlewareAuthRequired() within a middleware function?

Hello,

I am trying to run the withMiddlewareAuthRequired() function inside of a parent middleware function in the middleware.ts file which is a part of Nextjs itself. Nextjs only allows one middleware function to be exported and I want to check the request url pathname before I run the nextjs-auth0 middleware function. For some reason it does not work and the middleware function parameter i call in withMiddlewareAuthRequired() never seems to run. Any idea how I can achieve this? Below is my middleware.ts file

import { NextRequest, NextResponse } from 'next/server';
import { getAccessToken, withMiddlewareAuthRequired } from '@auth0/nextjs-auth0/edge';

export default function middleware(req: NextRequest) {
  const { pathname } = req.nextUrl;
  console.log(pathname);

  if (pathname.startsWith('/api/v1/user/register')) {
    console.log('############ REGISTER HANDLER');
    // do something that does not require auth
    return NextResponse.next();
  } else 
  if (pathname.startsWith('/api/v1')) {
    console.log('############ API HANDLER');
    withMiddlewareAuthRequired(async function middleware(req) {
      const res = NextResponse.next();
      const { accessToken } = await getAccessToken(req, res);
      const requestHeaders = new Headers(req.headers);
      requestHeaders.set('Authorization', `Bearer ${accessToken as string}`);
      const url = `rest api endpoint`;
      return NextResponse.rewrite(url, {
        request: {
          headers: requestHeaders,
        },
      });
    });
  } else if (pathname.startsWith('/api/graphql')) {
    console.log('############ GQL HANDLER');
    withMiddlewareAuthRequired(async function middleware(req) {
      const res = NextResponse.next();
      const { accessToken } = await getAccessToken(req, res);
      const requestHeaders = new Headers(req.headers);
      requestHeaders.set('Authorization', `Bearer ${accessToken as string}`);
      const url = `graphql api endpoint`;
      return NextResponse.rewrite(url, {
        request: {
          headers: requestHeaders,
        },
      });
    });
  } else {
    console.log('############ EVERYTHING ELSE HANDLER');
    withMiddlewareAuthRequired();
    return NextResponse.next();
  }
}
