SFTP in Linux Server, Clarification on Absolute Path

We have SFTP enabled in our Linux Server. Our .Net Application / Project transfers file to the Linux Server.
We expect the file to be located in \home\myfolder\folder\subfolder\. - Just a Absolute file path.

But Application transfers the file to the Root directory of the user.

\home\<User_Id>\

Is that the restriction of SFTP in the Linux Server ?

In linux there is something called Restricted Shell.   Check the following document for more info.

Thank you, That is something we need to install on the server. That is not going to work out.
