Netlify CMS folder collection preview path without parent directory

Hello community! I have HUGO + Netlify CMS project and I need your help)

Lets assume I have collection set like this:

- name: "shop"
    label: "Shop"
    label_singular: "Product"
    folder: "content/shop"
    slug: "{{slug}}"
    create: true
    editor:
      preview: false
    fields: ..........

And I have directory like this:

site
\-- content
    \-- shop
        \-- _index.md
            product1.md
            product2.md
            product3.md

And URLs to these products look like this: http://mysite.com/shop/product1

URL for shop page with list of products look like this: http://mysite.com/shop which is totally ok for me.

So, is it possible to set something in configuration that URLs to products would be without directory in path? Like this http://mysite.com/product1

Workaround for this could be not using folder collection and use separate file collections one for each product. But I assume this is very bad solution.
