Inheritance in Python

I do not quite understand how inheritance works in Python.
I use python 3.6.1.
Let say I have a directory structure /a, /b. These two paths described 
in main class.
The second class describes additional structure in one of the main 
structures, say on /b and it should look like this:

Here is what I try to do:

class mainCL():
     def __init__(self):
         self.path1 = "/a"
         self.path2 = "/b"

class secondCL(mainCL):
     def __init__(newID):
         self.pathID = self.path2+"/id"+str(newID)

# main part of the script
secondaryStructure = []
mainStructure = mainCL()
for id in range(0,3):
     secondaryStructure[id] = secondCL(id+1)

The error message tells that object secondCL does not have attribute path2.
How do I define class secondCL?
How to use attribute from class mainCL in class secondCL?
How to use class secondCL in a right way? Do I need to pass class mainCL 
as a parameter?
