Photoshop: Apply smart filter to the portion of a smart object

I need to apply the filter effect to the portion of the smart object layer but whatever I do the effect is applied to the whole layer and then just cut everything that is outside the mask.

I tried adding a mask to the layer or editing smart filter mask and it does not do this

What I want is to restrict the effect to some area. Is there a way to do this?

Here, a filter mask simply works (so the filter only affects the white part). Not sure I understand you correctly... The drawback is that (AFAIK) other filters can only use that same mask.
