3. Made en export of Calendar. "Right Click"->Export Calendar. Saved on "home"-User folder.
4. Added exported Calendar into Thunderbird. "Right Click"->"New Calendar"->"On the Network". added location of *.ics File -> "file:///home/user1/"

You need to enter the full URL to the .ics file. In your case try file:///home/user1/calendar.ics or however you want to name it. 

I prefer a different workflow that is easier in my opinion: I just put the .ica file in the target location or create a new empty .ics file in the target location. In Thunderbird I use menu File > Open > Calendar File to integrate the .ics file as a new calendar in Lightning.
