Ubuntu – not see the /bin, /var, (etc.) directories in the root partition


I recently bought a VPS and when I log in as a root user, I dont see the /boot, /bin, /var, etc. directories. Why is this?

This is what I see when I use my ls -la command in the terminal. I am the root user and in the root directory:

Output from "ls -la"

It appears that you are in the directory /root and not /. Please type:

cd /
ls -al
