The pump noise on door opening is with petrol(gas) engines. My 2008 V6 TDI is silent until you hit the key. In the 6 the common rail is pressurized by the common rail pump which is belt driven rather than using the in-tank pump/s. No noise is normal.
Have you primed the fuel system, as with air in the common rail, it will not start.
