2 firmwareLinux_mipsel_rootfs (old one 2009,but I guess won't change
with more recent version)

I can only use qemu-mipsel-static from_ubuntu_nattty_10.04/10 to
recognise FirmwareLinux_busybox

google on some Portuguese site -people working on Nokia's embedded
stuffs )
Could you give me a guide line how to examine this problem 

Here how I tested different cases :
I just copy qemu-mipsel-static into mipsel_rootfs/usr/bin/
then from my ubuntu's_inside_that_mipsel_rootfs :

chroot . /bin/busybox 

to run mips_busybox locally.

(my ubuntu had binfmt-support + qemu_installed from synaptic_ubuntu by
