Pressure

For an air column trapped inside capillary tube by a drop of oil. With the capillary tube opened to the atmosphere, then the pressure of air column should be the same as that of atmospheric pressure.(Neglecting the pressure imposed by the drop of oil)

Would the pressure of air column be different from that of pressure applied?

Would the pressure of air column also increases to the same level to the greater pressure I applied to the drop of oil?
