Proxmox LXC is not mature yet, many bugs still there. Take a look at Proxmox forum you will see.

And I read LXC has seriously security issue which guest (VPS) can access to host (Server)?

That's a good point. OpenVZ is obsolete now, as it relies on 2.6 kernel with a custom patchset. LXC works on any modern kernel, as the required functions are already present in the mainstream kernel, so you get the latest performance enhancements and security patches on the kernel.

If LXC suits you, Proxmox is optional, but it helps a lot on containers management and deployment, and allows you to have also fully virtualized VMs (KVM). If you don't want it, you can search in your distro's package manager for a package named "lxc" to manage your CTs from command line.

You can install Proxmox 4, which includes LXC, from your OVH Manager.

If you specifically need OpenVZ, it's include with Proxmox 3.4, the previous version, which I think is still available from the OVH Manager.

Does it have to be OpenVZ?

Proxmox will give you LXC if that's good enough for the job.
