Best answer

"Mission to Mars" (2000)?
Detailed plot summary on Wikipedia here:

Not a perfect match, but the second part of your description ("The humans go to the aliens on mars? And then the aliens explain that they put the humans on earth and then 1 human goes home with the aliens?") matches the ending of the movie (see the above Wikipedia page):
"A projected humanoid alien reveals that the natives of Mars evacuated the planet in spaceships, one of which was sent to seed Earth with DNA in the hopes that it would create lifeforms who could one day land on Mars and be recognized as descendants. An invitation is offered for one of their group to follow the Martians to their new home. Jim accepts the invitation,"
"as Jim's capsule is launched from the crumbling formation and past them toward the Martians' home."
