“Your safety is assured,” the Maia said. “They will not be allowed to do you any harm.”
Of course, that made it impossible to refuse. Fingon gave the Maia his best incredulous expression. “I have fought dragons and Balrogs. I think I can handle a cousin and an uncle. Lead the way.”

Yes, I know that Tolkien says Fëa in the Halls of Mandos are solitary and don't like to mix. I think that's the sort of thing Mandos came up with as a theory while he was urgently trying to work out what to do with Finwë, Miriel and a sudden stream of badly shocked people from Alqualondë, and was also a really good excuse for sticking Fëanor in a quiet corner until he calmed down a bit, when he arrived.
I think if you just said to newly-arrived-in-Mandos Fëanor, hey, you can leave if you like, your choice, then he would be back in a new body and down to Alqualondë to pinch another boat before you could shake a stick at him. They must have found some way to hang onto him, and you'd expect them to be wary of Maedhros too, given his record.
