    Hi

    Firstly, when you create the user, you'll need to set it's home directory to that folder.

    Then, you'll need to enable ssh chrooting.

    Chrooting, when used, either through SSH, FTP among other things, makes the user's home directory when logged in remotely appear as / therefore they are unable to cd .. out of it.
