Hello @yong hu,
Just following-up from your last question! This is generally a permissions issue.
Have a look at Unable to start Confluence. Error is "Unable to bootstrap application: Could not make directory/ies: <home-directory>". Although the error isn't exactly the same, the cause can be the same:

After doing the above, go to /opt/atlassian/confluence/bin and run the following command:
Let me know if that helps, or if you have any questions about this.
