OK. That helped to understand how samba manages users. I looked at the details of my users. Both, user1 and user2, are defined exactly the same way. User1's home directory is set to \\debianhomeserver\user1 and user2's home directory is set to \\debianhomeserver\user2. Accessing user1's home directory which is still in /home/user1 works fine, user2's home directory, which was moved to /mnt/volume1/homes/user2 does not. 

Can I provide anything else that might allow you to help me solving that mystery?

That was automatically adjusted after the usermod command I mentioned earlier. To my understanding, once these items are changed and the user logs in he should have full access to the share.
