Sandbox/Chroot Jail and Seperate Filesystem

I want to make a sandbox for my music streaming server(subsonic). I was going to make a directory and chroot to it. I don't really have any room on my HD for new partitions. For the sandbox/chroot jail to be proper does it need to be on a seperate filesystem/mount point?

You can have chroot anywhere you want, all required folders can be mounted into chroot with --bind.
