The set of all positive integers is the union of two disjoint subsets $\{f(1), f(2),\dots ,f(n),\dots\}$ and $\{g(1), g(2),\dots,g(n),\dots\},$ where $f(1) < f(2) <\dots < f(n) < \dots,$ and $g(1) < g(2) <\dots< g(n) < \dots,$ and $g(n) = f(f(n)) + 1$ for all $n \geq 1.$ What is the value of $g(1)?$
