When Paul said Jesus first descended to the lower parts of the earth, where was this?

Also when Jesus descended was it to free the captives such as Abraham because he wasn't under the new covenant?

Ephesians 4:9

NKJV - 9 (Now this, "He ascended" - what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?

What was His purpose to go to Hell? I read to free the captive. Was some of the Old Testament people captive such as Abraham because they was under the old covenant?
