The explicit dot is to tell the system that you want the current working directory.
So by saying "./tmp" you want the tmp (directory or file) that is located in the current working directory. If i understand what you are saying is that "./tmp" is a directory in the current working directory. If there is a file in that directory that you can open then yes you should be able to open a file in that directory. just remember that "./" means that you want the current working directory. Also, "../" means that you want to move up one in the directory structure.
