In OneDrive there is a limit of file path which allows only 260 characters. This killing our file storage structure. It should support more character or count file name as path not all folders.

I agree. With business as complex as it is, with many having multiple areas of effort, having a relatively small character limit of 260 is unhelpful. The error message that displays is equally unhelpful and makes no mention of the limit thus forcing me to waste time to see if I had some character within the path that is not permitted - even more frustrating. Many years ago the limit for file names was 8 characters - one reason why I preferred Macs. Don't make me go back.
They should fix this, if you think; the beggining (C:/user/user/Business/ecc...), and arriving to the sixth level of folders (totally reasonable), let say 25 characters each level (totally reasonable), we already have ~210, leaving just 50 character in case of SharePoint Server, for the file name assuming that no other level of folder will be add (very unlikely). I don't know why it doesn't allow it, if the code of SharePoint, I don't know, but please fix it..
