    If you don’t want /home/ to be a page or show up, make that URL a 301 (“Moved Permanently”) and redirect to it to your home page. Search engines respect 301’s and users are instantly redirected, so it’s a win-win. You can add a redirect with this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/

    The improper /home/ link will linger for a while in search results, but users won’t see it or that button, and your submitted sitemap plus the 301 will have it be removed eventually.
