The functionality you ask for isn't built into excel by default, the options you have are below (assuming the sheets are on the same workbook):
You could use the 'Allow Users to Edit Ranges' option in Excel.

Or you could use VBA code such as:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim sh As Worksheet
For Each sh In Sheets
   sh.Visible = xlSheetVisible
Next sh
Select Case Environ("UserName")
Case "User1", "User2", "User3"
   Sheet2.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
   Sheet3.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
Case "User4", "User5"
   Sheet2.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
   Sheet1.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
'etc
Case Else:
End Select
End Sub

It goes in the This WorkBook module and runs when the workbook is opened.
User1 etc. aren't  users actual logon names. You'd need to replace them with the users actual names.

Thanks,
Andy
