Is it correct if I say "She mustn't be at home"? In China, my English teacher said we can't say "She mustn't be at home" instead of saying "She can't be at home" when we are 100% for sure that something is the cas, and she told us it's wrong if we say that. But I think we can say both of them. Am I right?

you CAN , but your teacher is correct in this situation. We have not used that type of speech for a long time in the states , that is a very outdated form of speaking here. Cheers !!
