SFTP root folder instead of root itself [answered]

Every time I connect to my Jolla using SFTP I get thrown to /root which is annoying but I used to be able to deal with it. But now I set up a new Ubuntu GNOME on my Laptop and wanted to directly connect using Nautilus. Problem here is that I have no possible way to get up from /root to /
Has anyone an idea what I could do? I wanted to put shortcuts in that folder but the file browser on the phone doesn't let me do that.

I think this will help you.

The user search for a tutorial to change the home directory for sftp.

Thanks for the link but I understood absolutely nothing there.

Yeah, I know it's not so easy but I don't found any easy tutorial.

May someone can explain it to you better. I'll edit my answer.

Okay, found the answer myself, for anyone interested: press ctrl+l in Nautilus to type in paths, then just delete the word root and press enter, done.
