Ok I understand your point of view. So what do you advise ? Creating separated domain dedicated to DMZ ? 
I was thinking to manage security using strict firewall rules but yes, this is a hole..

Yes, do not do it ;-) 

You say that you are going to put a fileserver into the DMZ as well and 
your users will log into this. This means that the RODC will have to 
ask a DC to authenticate the users, this means punching holes in the 
firewall between your DMZ and internal network, any extra holes in a 
firewall are a security risk. 
Also by putting the fileserver in the DMZ, you are placing there, 
something that will very very probably cache usernames and passwords. 

It is your network and you may get to pick up the pieces if it all goes
