Just note that, for multiplication, every non-zero element on the first column has, on its line, a $1$, which means it has a inverse to the right... Now, for every element on the first row, which contains nonzero elements, it has a 1 on its column, which means it is left-invertible.
Thus, it is a field since every nonzero element is invertible.
