|your cat scratches the door because they know you will open it. the cat has 'trained' you well.
It will be a bit hard to get the cat out of the habit. you can try to ignore the cat when it wants to be let out (or in. whichever room has its litterbox is the room it should stay in) this may or may not work. you would have to totally ignore the cat for the entire night for a few nights. no talking to the cat, yelling, or touching the cat. most cats will test your resolve for sure.
If thats not possible you might have to just leave the door open a crack. maybe get some ear plugs?
My cats will cry when they are locked out of my bedroom but not when locked in (unless im not in there) whenever we have guests over, my cats know they are locked in the bedroom at night and i wont let them out untill morning. This took a few nights of willpower.
