A Question about Poisson

The following applies to a Poisson process:

I am wondering how to calculate the probability that there are zero
events in an interval given that one event occurs _in the interval
before_. That is, Given the probability of an event occuring once in a
random interval, what is the probability of there being zero events in
the NEXT interval?

Thank you in advance for any response.
