Set homepage as most recent content post

All good! I was able to make it work.

<?php 
  $subpages = page('home')->children()->visible();
  if($page->hasNextVisible() || $page->hasPrevVisible()): ?>
  <nav class="pagination wrap cf">

    <?php if($page->hasPrevVisible()): ?>
      <a class="pagination-item nav prev" href="<?= $page->prevVisible()->uid() ?>" rel="prev">&rsaquo;</a>
    <?php else: ?>
      <a class="pagination-item nav prev" href="<?= $subpages->last()->uid() ?>" rel="prev">&rsaquo;</a>
    <?php endif ?>

    <?php if($page->hasNextVisible()): ?>
      <a class="pagination-item nav next" href="<?= $page->nextVisible()->uid() ?>" rel="next">&lsaquo;</a>
    <?php else: ?>
      <a class="pagination-item nav next" href="<?= $subpages->first()->uid() ?>" rel="next">&lsaquo;</a>
    <?php endif ?>

  </nav>
<?php endif ?>

Then I used this plugin from this thread to get the homepage to redirect to the first article.
