The opposite of empty is Filled.

Can't we go for filled rather than Solid.

No, we can't go for filled. The reason is we use HOLLOW for determining the structure of a thing like hollow bar, but empty is a word which is generally used when we talk about a quantity or a number, for example, the box is filled with chocolates/the chocolate box was empty.

I think your doubt is clear.
