I think you are getting a little confused when you ask "What is the use of a 50 mm 1.8 lens outdoor" it's as useful outdoors as it is indoors, it's a cracking sharp lens, good in shade and low light or giving a great, shallow depth of field to your shots.
As far as which filters you need, it depends on what sort of photos you are taking with the lens. If you are taking the lens on holiday, or do a lot of photography near water, then you might need a circular polariser, if you want to protect the front of the lens you might put a UV filter on and if you want to do sunset or sunrises, you might need a ND.
I can't remember who it was on this forum, that did a challenge of only using their 50mm for a month, perhaps someone else can jump in with the answer, you'll then be able to see what they achieved. But the 50mm really gets you closer to your subject.
