can we lock him to his own home directory ? Not able to let him browse outside his own directory?

currently, he can see the list of users in /home (in the jail container /backup/jail)
is this normal?

if you have multiple users inside 1 jail, they can see each other
existence, and (if the directory permissions allow so) share files. You
can create a jail for each user without a problem, just make sure you
use hardlinks to avoid extra diskspace costs.
