This must be the culprit. It seems that the wsl document[1]
indicated by Arash (thanks Arash!) instructs to use the directory of the
\\wsl$\<Distro Name>\home\<User name>
as the wsl home directory from windows side:
"Use the Linux file system root directory: \\wsl$\Ubuntu\home\<user 
"..., but your performance speed will improve if you store them directly on the 
\\wsl$ drive."
"To view all of your available Linux distributions and their root file systems 
in Windows File explorer, in the address bar enter: \\wsl$"

1. What happens when you enter
   in the address bar of windows explorer? (not in wsl)
2. What happens when you issue
explorer.exe .
   in wsl bash console?

If 1. or 2., or both, doesn't return sane result, I suspect that your
installation of wsl is somewhat broken. Consult the troubleshoot section:
