So I now know I had no good idea with the network share :-)

I hope I made that clear :-)

I thought it possible because I read that firebird embedded is at most the same engine as the firebird server.

It is.  But the Shared Server has a single process mediating all physical access to the database file and the Classic Server uses interprocess communication to avoid physical access conflicts.
The Embedded Engine mediates conflicts between connections it makes, but has no way to detect the existence of other Embedded Engines accessing the file through a network share.

Good luck,
