When you create a volume, you can set the multiattach flag, but Nova doesn't support multi-attachment yet. See also this spec for Queens:

As cinder mounts these as scsi devices to the instances, without cluster software in the OS that is aware of this function, it is not possible.

I suggest you use Manilla to do an NFS, or CIFS export. Then all three systems can share/access and modify at the same time.
